At least 15 percent of Oakland teachers took today off to participate in the Occupy Oakland general strike, the school district said.Again, Oakland mayor Jean Quan is responsible for lawfully authorizing all 300 of those teachers to show up at the November 2nd, General Strike. Only in Oakland would a mayor invite vandals and lawlessness into her city. Oh, Quan is a liberal Democrat.
A little more than 300 teachers missed work to join the strike, said Troy Flint, a district spokesman. The district won't know exactly how many didn't come to work until later today, Flint said
There weren't enough substitute teachers in a handful of schools, so some students had to be moved into other classrooms, he said.
"These are the people who followed our procedures," Flint said, referring to the teachers who stayed away. Teachers were allowed to take the day off if they submitted a request by Monday and the district was able to find a sub, Flint said.
The good news is that the mask is finally off the evil that has infected America.
The bad news is that this evil has one ugly face (not a reference to Quan).
